Support » Localhost Installs » Admin area not showing on Local install

  • WordPress 3.3.1.
    MAC OSX 10.6.8
    PHP Version 5.2.6

    My local install is a mirror of a live site. The live site is up and running ok.
    Last night I downloaded all the files and the db to work on the site locally.

    I’ve updated wp_options with the local url in siteurl and home in sql.

    The site loads, and I can navigate around site as usual.
    I can login at mysite.local/wp-login.php

    But once logged in and the redirect tries to go to mysite.local/wp-admin
    nothing shows up. (looking at source there is no html).

    The directory structure is fine and all the files are where they’re meant to be.

    When I return to the home page, the admin bar is shown at the top, showing that I am actually logged in. However if I use the drop down and try to go to the dashboard, same problem, redirect to: mysite.local/wp-admin is completely blank

    htaccess in root:

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    hosts file:       mysite.local


    <VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName mysite.local
    DocumentRoot /Volumes/myHardDrive/htdocs/mysite

    also tried adding to wp-config.php:

    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', 'mysite.local’);

    this is driving me nuts! been trying to figure this our for 3 hours.
